World Trade Organization Meeting 1999

[in Seattle, Washington of the United States of America]
I thought this would be a non-event for The Crash -- but then downtown Seattle had violent protests justifying a civil state of emergency....
The setup prior to November 28, 1999 was already volatile. Four factions were there to stage protests: One abandoned apartment building has been illegally converted into a hotel for protesters, and has already endowed with enough food and water for 500 protesters to outlast the WTO convention for several weeks.
